    Thanks for this post. I just used it for a research report into concussions. We at frontoficeblogs.com would love to have you look up our page too. I will probably be writing a smaller version of my concussion essay on there soon. Thanks again!

    It would be awesome if you could compare current data to previous seasons. Is 69 considered high through this point in the season? Is the league on pace for a record amount of concussions?

    Great site

      Yes on all accounts… This season has been different, the reporting of concussions has been a hot topic and one being monitored by the League itself. I have not officially looked back yet (takes some time), but it would be this is a new “high” for the League… I should have an updated list for you Wed. night or Thursday some time, but the number is now 71, not including this last weekend… I found two more concussions that never made the injury list instead went straight to IR…
